    Hey,
    How am I supposed to move down to uni, or even get there, if I wont receive my loan until the first day of my education. This is causing great difficulty for me, is there anything I can do?

    PS i'm going to live in private accommodation

    Thank you

    There are 3 months between the end of exams and the start of term. The expectation is that you use that time to work and save funds. Your student loan is to cover living costs while you study not before then.

    It used to be possible to claim JSA for those 3 months if you couldn't find work - until it is 100% certain that you'll be going to university and your course starts then you aren't officially in full time education.
